Famous actor and shameless dilettante James Franco has made short work of his art career since his first solo show only two years ago at Clocktower Gallery. His latest project at LA MOCA is based on Nicholas Ray’s classic 1955 film Rebel Without A Cause. An entire warehouse recreates the bungalow section of Hollywood’s Chateau Marmont, where James Dean purportedly jumped through a window to meet Natalie Wood for his audition with Ray. Franco invited his dream cast of rebel artists to develop images and themes from the film: Ed Ruscha, Terry Richardson (who contributed his photos of Franco in drag), Paul McCarthy, Damon McCarthy, Aaron Young, Harmony Korine, and Douglas Gordon. Contributions from Paul McCarthy and his son Damon are also on view at The Box Gallery in Downtown LA.
